The Good Witch

Handwritten page of a diary dated July 17, 1965

that’s what’s so great about summer. And with no bedtime I’ve been watching TV till it signs off in the middle of the night. My new favorite thing is those old movies with men in tuxedos and women in big fluffy dresses and they dance up and down and around on a set that looks like a big wedding cake and nobody has a care in the world about how the real world looks.

A few nights ago they played this old movie called “The Great Ziegfeld” and it was about this guy who put on those fluffy kinds of shows on Broadway and he married this girl named Billie Burke. Boy, that name sounded familiar, so I went to the library and I looked her up and I found out she was the actress who played only the most beautiful woman in the world—THE GOOD WITCH in THE WIZARD OF OZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
